Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) has received a contract to transform the US Air Force’s (USAF) F-15 Eagle’s scheduled maintenance programme (SMP).

The contract was awarded by the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC). It has a maximum potential value of $6.9m, if all options are exercised, and requires the Intergraph subsidiary to transform F-15 SMPs using Maintenance Steering Group-3 (MSG-3) practices.

IGS senior vice-president Gerald King said: "We are eager to provide the F-15 programme office our proven world-class technical expertise for integration of commercial best practices that enhance aircraft safety, boost reliability, shrink maintenance costs, and support extended lifecycles."

Under the contract, ISG would deliver a new MSG-3 SMP baseline, commercial best practice technical data and the full range of capabilities to maintain the F-15 fleet over its lifetime.

"IGS is eager to provide the F-15 programme office its proven world-class technical expertise for integration of commercial best practices that enhance aircraft safety."

The MSG-3 solution is adapted for and applied on military aircraft. It will serve as the vehicle to transform the F-15 Eagle’s SMP, enabling more effective and efficient maintenance of the fleet.

Called SmartMaintenanceFast, the solution was developed for military aircraft and helicopters in response to US Department of Defense’s ageing aircraft fleets, declining budgets and increasing maintenance costs. It also satisfies all requirements of the Airlines for America’s (A4A’s) latest MSG-3 revision (2013.1).

The solution comprises FleetVector maintenance solutions and FleetInsight technology products, and also ensures full compliance with military-unique regulations, policies, missions, and environmental requirements.

Contract work would leverage the experience and expertise the company applied in similar efforts for the C-5 and UH-1N programme, and is scheduled to be performed at its facility in Warner Robins, Georgia, US.

The F-15 Eagle is manufactured by Boeing. It is an all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed to obtain and maintain air superiority during aerial combat missions.

In addition to the USAF, the aircraft is also operated by Japan, Israel and Singapore.
